The History of Ski for Light

www.sfl.org [cached]

The program for mobility-impaired skiers was almost dead, but a first-time participant, Jeff Pagels, decided it was worth continuing.
Jeff had been a high-competition athlete and had only recently been injured. He found SFL to be his way to ski and compete again. He subsequently became one of the premier sit skiers in world competition. Through his enthusiasm and creativity the SFL sit ski program was reborn Sculptor Bill Osmundsen worked during the week in the lobby of the Sheraton Four Points Hotel creating a clay model of his new motif "Sit Skier" which was developed with Jeff Pagels who provided his expertise on the sit ski Despite the two bad years at Telemark, and with the encouragement from Jeff Pagels, SFL decided to take a chance on northern Wisconsin again. Beginning sometime in the early 90's, Jeff Pagels secured major support from JanSport.

While there was always a "mobility-impaired" component, that program was significantly enhanced in 1986, with the involvement of Jeff Pagels, a Wisconsin-based SFL board member who became paraplegic when a tree fell on him in 1984.
Through Ski for Light, he reclaimed skiing, using a "sitski" and poles. Today, Mr. Pagels organizes the mobility-impaired participants in skiing and ice hockey for the SFL event.
